Getting familiar with the Photoshop interface As with all the major software programs out there, the Photoshop interface is very different than what you might be used to. The default interface has been designed for busy photographers shooting thousands of images at a time. It works pretty well for that purpose. To get started, you need to install a copy of Photoshop from the Adobe website. After you've downloaded and installed it, launch Photoshop from the Applications folder. Or, if you prefer, you can use the Access Photoshop icon in the main Windows Explorer window to launch Photoshop. If you don't see the Photoshop icon in the Windows Explorer window, go to Start ⇒ Search and type Photoshop. Or if you want to search for the Start menu in Windows 7, start by tapping the Windows key and pressing the Search key on your keyboard. You can use Photoshop as a stand-alone program or as an add-on to another program. To start Photoshop, click the Photoshop icon from the Windows menu at the upper-left corner of the screen, as shown in Figure 4-1.

Q: Why we say "Vichy"? "Vichy" is a very common word in English. I have never seen any specific usage to describe the location except for the story "All Quiet on the Western Front". Why we say "Vichy"? A: The term Vichy was invented by the Germans for a personality type. The term was coined by Lucien Rebatet and is a combination of Vicus (Latin for "weak") and "gauchiste" (French for "leftist"). The term thus translates roughly to "soft left", where "left" refers to the philosophy of Communism. This term was used by the Germans to describe those officers that avoided the "anti-democratic" and even "fascist" policy after the war. The Vichy regime was founded by Marshal Pétain on 10 July 1940 in the self-proclaimed French rump state that was located in the unoccupied zone of France and consisted of the northern part of Vichy (Auvergne) and southernmost Limousin with its capital at Vichy-Toulouse. The regime fell on 2 June 1944 and was replaced by the Provisional Government of the French Republic (GNF) under the presidency of Marshall Philippe Pétain. Both Pétain and his deputy, Albert Sarraut, were sentenced to death at the Nuremberg trials for crimes against humanity, of which the notion of "crimes against humanity" did not exist in international law at the time.

Let $\omega: M \to \mathbb R^2$ be a smooth map such that the pull back $\omega_f$ of $\omega$ to $T^2 \times M$ is maximal. Then $M$ is called maximal. I would like to know the following. Let $n\geq 2$. Is it possible to construct an example of a closed manifold $M$ of dimension $n$ and a maximal $\omega$ of dimension $2n$? A: Take the $4$-ball
